Navigator voor file on application server?

We are looking for a function module which can let me navigate the files on the application server. (the ones i see when i uses transaction AL11)

The function 'NAVIGATION_FILENAME_HELP' can only be applied for files on the presentation server.

Any help is welcome

    You probably want to look at the EPS function modules in Function Group EPSF. Specifically you probably want EPS_GET_DIRECTORY_LISTING and maybe EPS_GET_FILE_ATTRIBUTES. Now these aren't released function modules so use them at your own risk. I actually found that the structure for return of the filenames was rather limited in the EPS_GET_DIRECTORY_LISTING function module (limited to filenames of 40 characters). However the actual reading of the information is done in a Kernel call. I ended up copying the SAP function module and increasing the length on both the directory name and filename parameters that receive the data from the Kernel call.
